  • vegetable peeler
  • sharp knife
  • 2 baking sheets



  • Preheat your oven to 375° F.
  • Peel the parsnips and slice into long, thin strips (a little over 1/3 inch thick).
  • Toss with coconut oil (about 1 tablespoon per 1 large parsnip)
  • Place parsnips on two large baking sheets and sprinkle with unrefined sea salt.
  • Place the baking sheets on middle racks and roast for 30 minutes, turning once at the 15 minute mark.
  • Once the fries have cooked for 30 minutes, turn your oven to “broil” on low and continue cooking until golden on the outside. Make sure to check them every 3-5 minutes so they don’t burn. The amount of time needed will vary depending on how thick/thin your fries are. You’ll probably find that the fries on the top rack are done sooner. If so, remove them and move the fries that were on the lower rack up.
